* ''Film/TheAmazingColossalMan'': The eponymous character had a heart that didn't grow as fast as the rest of him, which led to him having constant chest pains. A scientist claimed this was because the [[YouFailBiologyForever human heart was one giant cell]].
* In ''Film/OsmosisJones'', the kid who does the project on oyster filtration (which he just started the morning of the science fair) is mentioned by Ms. Boyd as having a brain the size of a tangerine.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', this happens because the Ventures' [[IncredibleShrinkingMan shrinking technology]] is a little buggy:
** In "Escape to the House of Mummies Part II", Dr. Venture, Pete White, and Billy Quizboy put their heads together to rebuild the dismantled shrink-ray gun, and then they proceed to the testing phase where Billy is selected as the guinea pig. The first test seems to have no effect, but he croaks out that they shrank his lungs. They consider this a blessing, since Dr. Venture just farted.
** In another test, they shrink just his head. Ironically, since Billy suffers from [[MyBrainIsBig hydrocephalus]], this means that we get a brief glimpse of what he would look like if he were normal. But he insists that they fix him, and they get it wrong by enlarging his whole body.
--->'''Pete:''' You look like Toby [=McGuire=] in a bad Hulk costume.
** When Sgt. Hatred invades the Venture compound while suicidal, he tries to off himself with a shot to the head. Unfortunately, he uses the same buggy shrink ray, and ends up with "a little baby tongue". This doesn't seem to affect his speech, and presumably it's corrected off-screen.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' episode "Operation S.P.R.O.U.T." when the gang enter Numbuh Four's body to remove a brussel sprout he'd eaten that was making him sick, at one point they enter his brain which is the size of a pea, of course this was after {{Flanderization}} [[TookALevelInDumbass had taken it's toll on his intelligence]].

* In a ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' sketch a judge has a brain that is so small that it gets stuck in cavities in the inside of the skull, making his speech unintelligible. He has an assistant who knocks hard on the back of his head to dislodge the brain.

In WesternAnimation, {{Anime}}, and {{Comics}} it is common to sum up behavioral problems or character flaws as being the direct result of some greatly underdeveloped organ in a character's body. Maybe said character [[Literature/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas has a heart that is too small]] and thus cannot properly love or maybe their brain resembles the size of a golf ball and thus lacks normal intelligence. Of course, having an organ this small in RealLife would [[YouFailBiologyForever cause serious complications for most of these characters]], so this trope is very often PlayedForLaughs.
